Welcome to the Touch the Banner message board! This is one of the features I am most excited about for the upcoming days and months and years. You are all free to post discussion topics, news bits, etc. as you see fit. You can register for the site, create a profile, and participate at will. I do ask that any off-topic posts are labeled well, including preceding any non-football or non-Michigan posts with “OT.”
Congrats on the new site!! I like the look of it, except I have to agree on the Hi-lighter yellow (it’s not Maize) and white writing complaint. It’s too difficult to read. Maybe you could add a blue outline to it and while you’re at it maybe some bumble bee stripes.
Suggestion: When I click into a specific post, it would be great to have some sort of navigation at the bottom that says “Previous Post” and “Next Post” with a little description, or little arrows on either side of the page to allow navigation to the next/previous posts.
Maybe it’ll just take some getting used to, but I find the semi-transparent header that won’t go away to be distracting. It shrinks the screen and makes it harder to read content. Looks cool, but I think that simple is better functionally.
I’m not 100% sold on it, either, but I do like that it offers up some easy navigation. If people are going back and forth to the forum, the offer boards, the blog, etc., then I think it serves some functionality. I’m kind of considering it as a trial run.
One thing I really miss from the old board is the number of comments to a topic on the home page. It allowed me to scan the topics to see if there were additional comments since I last read it. It it is possible to do something similar it would be very much appreciated.
There are a couple current options. There is a “Recent Comments” widget on the right sidebar where you can see if someone has commented recently on a topic that interests you. Also, if you click on Blog in the top menu or bookmark the link
